Nice easy walk with changing scenery and stunning views. Slippery when wet but no steep inclines or descents. A good circuit.

This trail has beautiful views but it is not 16.6km as indicated here. The official sign at Lamington National Park states Ships Stern as 19km but my GPS said it was more than 20km. Lots of big fallen trees so be prepared to climb and pull yourself up over them. Scary bits up high on the trail but worth it for the views.

sensational walk

Hiked this track with my son... took us 5hrs and 45 mins. Its one of the most amazing tracks ... it takes you past a waterfall and the climb is just as amazing as walking the bottom. When you get to the ships stern it is the most amazing sight yet!!

Loved every minute of it!!


I did this walk unexpected,
It was an amazing walk.
Absolutely beautiful when you reach the bottom. Would be a great little spot in summer.
Allow your self and hour up and down.

Awesome walk, beautiful weather, perfect day

One of our favourite walks, have done this trail many times. Gorgeous waterfalls starting with the trip down to Picnic Rock, and following the trail down to the Box Log falls. Have spotted spiney blue crashfish in the waters below the falls on many occasions. Track is well maintained, can get a little muddy closer to the lower falls

A walk for the more experienced hikers, track can get a bit tricky to follow at times but hiking clubs have marked the way to Westrays Grave and the Stinson crash site with pink, orange or red ribbons along the way. Getting a little lost, just look for the closest ribbon to get back on track. Beyond Westrays grave the track stops, but the creek can be followed up through to the amazing Larapinta falls, rock hopping about 45 minutes can get a bit tricky at times, and ribbons not so easy to spot. But making your way up to the falls is well worth it! Recommend good shoes with ankle support (about 6 hours return)

Nice walk with some lovely views of the two waterfalls. I agree with a previous poster, and would suggest going anti-clockwise so the falls are kept until the end.

Great falls for skinny dipping!

A beautiful hike, not for those with fear of heights as cliff edges are a bit hair raising. Took us 9 hours, although we took our time and had two breaks and detoured to view both lower and upper Ballunjui Falls. Beautiful. Was a couple of leeches and tics. Do watch out for snakes. But highly recommend!

Very beautiful, takes you up through Antarctic Beech, then down into gorgeous creek lines and waterfalls! Great views on a good day if the cloud isn’t in your way! Beware leeches if it’s wet!

Nice little hike!

Gorgeous hike! There is a spectacular lookout to Mount Warning at Echo Point!

Nice hike, Heath is beautiful! Can be hot in summer!

Wow! Absolutely beautiful heathlands plus spectacular views! Check weather though because you wouldn’t want to be caught out there in a storm!

This track has been closed for some time due to extensive damage from tropical cyclone Debbie. It’s advised to check with Qld Parks and Wildlife first. (8/1/18)

Albert River runs off the main border track. Very private hike with hardly any other hikers to be seen. Tracks run along the river with lots of waterfalls. Really enjoyed this one as a solo hike. Track is reasonably easy to spot.

This is a wonderful walk through the classic Gold Coast hinterland. Great caves on the cliff face. When we were there the waterfall was creating an incredible rainbow across the whole valley. Never seen anything like it !!! Try the home made pies at the binna burra tea house afterwards!

My most fav trail. I recommend if your doing in summer take lots of water. The top end can get very warm and the long grass makes it very dry and a snake haven. So be cautious when walking this area. I wouldn't say it's a difficult trek but does take 4-5 hours with a good stop for lunch. Starting early morning is recommended to be able to enjoy all the gorgeous views along the way. Take a camera. Not recommend for kids as there are some dangerous cliff edges and I wouldn't want mine there. But most of the trail is easy to walk. Only a few km of up hill. He rest is reasonably moderate.
